Grilled stuffed mini peppers that are both easy and delicious. This vegetarian appetizer is made with only 3 ingredients — goat cheese, jalapeños and mini peppers!
During the summer, Tony and I love nothing more then enjoying most of our meals on the grill. Frankly, it’s easy and I don’t mind eating simpler meals so I can avoid turning on the oven and blasting the AC.
Wanna know our go-to meal? It’s not fancy.
Usually we’ll do turkey burgers or chicken sausage with grilled peppers, baked beans and a salad on the side. It’s like having the ultimate backyard BBQ even when it’s just us two. Sometimes I’ll jazz it up a bit and make guacamole or a strawberry goat cheese spinach salad, but there’s really nothing too special about it.
And I’m not gonna lie, usually Tony has a bag of potato chips on the side too because he claims that ‘baked beans, chips and ketchup together are delicious’ and then proceeds to mix them all together. #MEN
Today I wanted to share one of our favorite ways to enjoy mini peppers. They’re simple, but so delicious and make the perfect appetizer for all of your summer BBQs.
The best part? You only need three ingredients:
Mini sweet bell peppers.
These little peppers are SO addicting and remind me of a healthier version of a jalapeño popper aka the best appetizer that ever existed. Theses mini peppers are tangy, sweet, creamy and even a little spicy.
I hope you make them for your next summer party and watch your guests gobble up the deliciousness. Just grill them up, stuff, then enjoy! xo.
